Agricultural Education Important
Agricultural education is a work vital
ly related to the prosperity of Nebraska
Anything which will cause our farmers
to become acquainted with the best meth
ods of selecting seed for the various
crops with those practices in planting
and cultivation which have been found
best adapted to the conditions in our
state is certainly to be sought after by
our young farmers

It will build up the weakened

other foods fail to nourish If

you It is essentially the best
possible nourishment for delicate
children and pale anaemic girls
We will send you a sample free

If all the persons engaged in feeding
cattle were to becomo familiar with the
principles of feeding the application of
which made the production of Challen
ger and Challenger II possible our live
stock industry would find its wealth
doubled in a few years Should a scien
tific knowledge of soil -composition soil
structure and soil treatment become the
universal possession of Nebraska farm
ers the productiveness of our farms
would increase from year to year
The only way to bring these things to
pass is for our farmers to insist on as
careful training for their sons as is in
sisted on those who are to be ministers
doctors and lawyers
The University of Nebraska is offering
instruction Avhieh if taken advantage of

first order in the production of grain and

being done It only remains for our

Jieiv Years Calls
The custom of visiting and sending
presents and cards on New Years day
is recorded almost as far back as his
tory goes The practice of using visit
ing cards can be traced back for thou
sands of years by the Chinese Their
New Years AIsiting cards are curiosi
ties Each one sets forth not only the
name but all the titles of its owner
and as all Chinamen who have any
social position at all have about a
dozen it makes the list quite appalling
These cards are made of silk or else of
fine paper backed with silk and are so
large that they have to be rolled up to
be carried conveniently They are in
deed so valuable that they are return
ed to their owners
A Polish Kissing Bee
In Poland Noav Years eve Is observ
ed In a dance called St Sylvesters
ball The dancing proceeds decorously
until the clock strikes 12 Exactly at
that moment the men fall to kissing
their oavii and their neighbors part
ners each taking particular pains to
thus salute the one he loves best be
fore the one Aith whom she chances
to be dancing can perform that duty
Those not in the mood for dancing
gather in another room or remain at
home to entertain one another Avith
stories about the departing year
New Tears Dot In Russia
At every country house in Russia
there are a feast and a procession in
honor of New Years day Horses sheep
cows and hogs are dressed with gar
lands and led to the landlords house
The idea is that the animals shall be
taken into the dining room but when
the landlord has a handsomely furnish
ed apartment and does not care to
have it ruined he sets aside some other
room and allows the mob to take pos
session of it
An Old Engrllsh Custom
The old country Englishman never
falls to unbar his door at 12 oclock
New Years eve to let the old year out
and the iicaa year in
Nerv Years Violets
I sighed to give you flowers bright
Though Aanlshed sweet the summers
The violets heard my longings deep
Oh Avny down neath tho turf and snow
They wore not duo till April fair
Yet In Decembers wilderness
They felt tho Avarmth of friendships
And robed themselves In royal dress
Donahoea Magazine
How the GermanCclebriite the Con
version of CoiiMtiintinc
The evening of Dee 31 is known in
Germany as Sylvester evening In Eu
ropean calendars excepting that of
England the days of the year have
names and Dec 31 bears the name of
Sylvester who was bishop of Koine in
the time of the Emperor Constantino
and was obliged to hide himself in the
mountains to escape persecution Then
it happened that Constantino was smit
ten with leprosj for which horrible
disease the physicians couldrjproposo
no other remedy than a bath in the
blood of young children For this pur
pose 3000 children were gathered bul
Constantino moved to pity by the
despair of the mothers refused to avail
himself of such a sacrifice In the
night he Avas advised in a dream to re
call Sylvester and to accept the Chris
tian religion which he did
This evening is everywhere in Ger
many a time of great rejoicing Par
ties and balls are given and friends
gather to spend the last hours of the
old year in merriment games anil
dancing and most Important of all axi
guries and divinations Though these
tricks are as old as the hills they nev
er lose their charm Hot lead is pour
ed into cold water contained in a basin
and in solidifying it forms itself into
all kinds of shapes and figures in which
many meanings can be read by the
Empty walnut shells in each of which
burns a tiny wax taper are put to
gether in a basin of Avater to sAvim in
opposite directions If they meet tAvo
loAing hearts Avill be united in that
year but if they separate the love af
fair of those represented by the shells
will come to naught Young girls
throw slippers over their heads If the
points of the slippers face the door the
owners will be married that year if
the slippers miss the wished for direc
tion the girls have to remain at home
Sealed cards on which words of good
omen of good advice or wishes have
been written are passed around read
aloud and considered as indications of
the future New York Tribune
In Jnpnn It Is n Rellprloun Rite and
a Serious Mutter
To a devout Japanese breakfast on
New Years day is a religious rite rath
er than a vulgar satisfaction of the ap
petite No ordinary dishes are con
sumed at this meal The tea must be
made with Avater drawn from the AA ell
when the first ray of sun strikes it a
potpourri of materials specified by law
forms the staple dish while at the fin
ish a measure of special sake from a
red lacquer cup must be drained by
whosoever desires happiness during
thegCOining year
In the room is placed an elysian
stand or red lacquer tray covered
AAith evergreen leaves and bearing a
rice dumpling a lobster oranges per
simmons chestnuts dried sardines and
herring roc All these dishes have a
special signification The names of
some are homonymous with Avords of
happy omen the others have an alle
gorical meaning The lobsters curved
back and long chnvs typify life pro
longed till the frame is bent and the
beard is long the sardines Avhieh al
ways swim in pairs express conjugal
bliss the herring is symbolical of a
fruitful progeny
These dishes are not intended for
consumption although in most cases
the appetite Is fairly keen The ortho
dox Japanese not only sees the old
year out he rises at 4 to welcome the
ueAVComer and performs many ceremo
nies before he breaks his fast London
An Improved Diary
This explained the bookseller Is
our latest patent diary We think it is
the cleverest thing in that line ever de
The shopper turns the leaves idly
But I cant see Avhere it is different
from any other she observes
No Well if you aa M look at all
the dates after Jan 23 you will see
that in each space has been printed
Got up ate breakfast lunch and din
ner and AAcnt to bed That insures a
complete diary for the year Judge
New Years In France
New Years in France is a greater
day for exchanging gifts than Christ
mas The custom of Noav Years calls
once so popular in this country but
noAV fallen almost into disuse is still
supreme in Paris Great family din
ners in which the orange llgures most
prominently add to the gnyety of the
day So croAvded are the pavements
on the boulevards that pedestrians
sometimes have to take the middle of
the street
New Yenrs Day In Canada
With tho French Canadian Noav
Years day or le jour de lan as he
calls it is very much like Avhat Thanks
giAing day is to his Noav England
brother It is par excellence the feast

A Sonjy For the New Year
A song for the new year Its hopes and its
And never a song that Is saddened by
A song that shall ring and shall sing to
the years
A song of a brighter tomorrow
A song for the new year forgetting tho
Whoso story In sunshine and shadow
was told
A song of the joys that loves dear arms
shall hold
A song of a brighter tomorrow
A Eong of a green Avorld and bluest of
A song of a sun that In splendor shall
Tho joys In lovos heart and the lights
In loves eyes
And tho world sees a brighter tomor
